Rocky Road Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

Rocky Road Margaret River Chardonnay 2018

  • Australia
  • Chardonnay
  • ABV 13.1
  • Zalto Denk'Art Burgundy Glass

Stuart McCloskey "This has settled into a really good place and will certainly appeal to those who prefer to enjoy Aussie Chardonnay without the reins of fashionable restraint and the need to clench one’s buttocks to cope with the level of agonising acidity.  This is a charmer and ready to be enjoyed over the coming summer. It’s not a keeper, but another 24 months will do it no harm. The bouquet opens to hazelnut, cashew, salted lemon, barley, stone fruits, yoghurt (there’s a lactic twang, if you get my drift – you’ll see), apple skins, bruised apple along with a smidgen of ozone. The palate is fleshy, broad, creamy, super-smooth and is ready to be guzzled in the garden. There’s acidity that nips away nicely and keeps the ‘smoothness’ in check. The flavour spectrum follows a similar pattern to the bouquet – nutty, creamy, orchard fruits, confit lemon, saline / briny and finishes with a kiss of sweet spice. Addictive summer drinking. For maximum enjoyment - do not overchill and pour into Zalto Burgundy glassware. Highly recommended (at this price)."
